Scene from a redlined Brooklyn neighborhood

From Brownstoner:

...while brownstones were plenty protected in neighborhoods like Park Slope, non-landmarked neighborhoods like Sunset Park weren't so lucky...Kind of resurrects the old progress-versus-preservation argument, don't it?

That is a huge tragedy. I feel so bad for the people on that street. I would be sick.

What an eyesore.

My family is from Sunset Park, and I've not been there since the last of them moved out a few years ago. It's distressing to see the neighborhood being Queensified.

I wonder how long those storied old churches up and down 4th Avenue will last...
